Well, the past week saw busy days for us here in Fayetteville. School starts tomorrow at the university and 20,000+ students moved into town! I tell you, this place is hopping! Oh, and the shelves at Target and Wal-Mart are getting very empty.
Randy got enrolled in his two classes as a Senior Razorback! Enrolling in classes is a bit more confusing than the last time he was in college, but all was good in the end. He bought his books online through the school bookstore and picked them up today. He is almost ready for classes to start. We just have to decide if he wants the “Beatles” lunchbox here or the “Bonanza” one here. Which do you think would look better on him?
Two of our three kids had birthdays last week. It is hard to celebrate long distance, but they should be here for the Labor Day weekend! Randy’s sister is also coming and that is always fun. We are having a party. All the cool kids are coming. Several of the neighbors, that endured the remodeling process, are going to come and take a look at the “finished” house. Should be a good time. Luckily for the guests, my brother is cooking the meal. Cooking just isn’t something I excel at doing. When I find the THING that I do excel in, you will be the first to know!
Earlier in the week, we had a water line put in from the meter to the house. It actually went pretty smoothly and I managed to grab a shot before they buried it.
Now, if we can just get some grass installed, life would be lovely.
Well, you cannot live in Fayetteville without being exposed to great music. This weekend was the “Roots Festival” and there were musicians playing all over town. I managed to get a shot of one young lady performing at the farmers’ market.
I really enjoyed her music and loved her boots! Last night we sat on the deck and listened to Candy Lee and the Sweets play at Kingfish. That was fun. Speaking of fun, we spent Saturday morning at the farmers’ market. We always try to walk up there every weekend to check out the people.
Well, that wraps up another fascinating edition of life in Fayetteville. Hope everyone has a great week and Labor Day weekend. Check back next week to see how we are faring. As always, I love comments and don’t forget to vote for Randy’s lunchbox!9 Comments
